Libyan Air Wars

Military History / African Studies

 

Between 1973 and 1989, various Western powers and Libya were entangled in a seemingly never-ending exchange of blows.

The Fighting Doc

The fighting Doc

The Rhodesian Bush War Diary of John Coey, KIA 19 July 1975

 

It is Saturday afternoon, 19 July 1975, next to a dry riverbed in Rhodesia’s north-eastern operational area, in a war against communist-backed guerrillas. A Rhodesian combat medic receives an order to descend into the riverbed to attend to two critically wounded troopers, their figures seemingly lifeless on the sand. The whereabouts of the insurgents is not known. As the medic, displaying a red cross, moves in, shots ring out and he sustains a fatal head wound. That medic is 24-year-old American John Alan Coey.

... and a Colonial Upbringing in Northern Rhodesia

 

Throughout the author’s life in Northern Rhodesia (now Zambia) his father was a member of the Northern Rhodesia Police and the author sets about recording various incidents in the life of a youngster growing up on the numerous towns and police stations at which his father served. The family moved to Southern Rhodesia in 1964. Finalizing his secondary schooling at Chaplin School, Gwelo, Rhodesia, in 1965, the author joined the British South Africa Police (BSAP) in March 1966 and elected to go into the district branch of the Force.

A Pride Of Eagles

A Pride Of Eagles

A History of the Rhodesian Air Force 1920–1980

 

This is the story of military aviation in Rhodesia from the romantic days of ‘bush’ flying in the 1920s and ’30s—when aircraft were refuelled from jerrycans and landing grounds were often the local golf course—to the disbandment of the Rhodesian Air Force (RhAF) on Zimbabwean independence in 1980. In 1939 the tiny Royal Rhodesian Air Force (RRAF) became the first to take up battle stations even before the outbreak of the Second World War.
